Bogus. The word ummi does not mean illiterate as in the Quranic : al-rasul al-nabi al-ummi (Q7:157-158)

Or: the prophet the nabi (this word nabi is a loan word from Hebrew and is reserved for Biblical prophets) the GENTILE (non Jewish) so the word ummi really means non-Jewish or gentile and the aya is saying:

the prophet the nabi (Biblical prophet) the gentile (non-Jewish)

So much for Muhammad the jahil or illiterate otherwise how do you explain the Iqra' in Q96 which is read as: Read. But in actual fact if Muhammad cannot read then it must be read as Recite.

And do you see what happens to people like you that pontificate about a language Arabic that is that they do not know?

Wanna tell us more about the science if the Qur'an?
